Colores de Carol Holiday Collection | Winter 2014



A festive little collage for a festive large collection.  If I haven't yet expressed my absolute love for Colores de Carol polishes, please take heed: they are fantastic!  What I really love most is that her collections are cohesive yet have something for everyone.  If you read this blog regularly, you know I'm a stickler for cohesive collections.  As I swatched this collection, I kept saying to myself, "this is my favorite."  Then I'd swatch the next and say, "no, no, this is my favorite."  Seriously, it's that good.

Take a look.

Glitter Garland
Layered over China Glaze Tip Your Hat (my go to red this fall), Glitter Garland is one of the two glitter toppers from this collection.  A mix of circle glitters in holiday shades, this is a fun topper for those that want some whimsy in their manicures.  The circle pieces apply really easily but need to be dabbed for the best placement.

Stockings
Another milky white creme!  Stockings is a fun mix of red, green, and lime green glitters in multiples shapes (hearts and squares to name a few).  These glitters give a subtle dash of holiday flare to your hands without screaming Christmas.  Two or three coats although I find these cremes also look best over one layer of a plain white creme first (which I totally forgot to do with this here).

No Peeking
A black jelly, No Peeking is super shimmery.  Not only is it shimmery, it has specks of emerald glitters.  And even more that the glitter, there are a few circle glitter pieces floating about.  While I couldn't fish out a circle for this manicure, I still really love the galaxy effect No Peeking leaves on the nails.  This is two coats but probably could've used a third.

The North Star
This stunning blurple/navy crelly is jammed packed with microshimmer.  While the cobalt and sapphire shimmers are visible in this photo, in person, this flashes with lilac and violet shimmer too.  Sigh.  Just beautiful.  Two coats.

Blanca Navidad
This snow iridescent topper is just so much fun!  I layered one coat of just the iridescent jelly  flushed with flakies and random hex glitter and then had to fish for the snowflake glitters.  So worth it though.  Look at how amazing this looks!

Merry Mistletoe
What's a holiday collection without a green?  Merry Mistletoe is an evergreen green with an intense shimmer, scattered holographic specks, and tiny shards of flakies.  Delicious and rich combination in two coats.

Stuck in the Chimney
How adorable is this name?  Super cute for a fun bright pink creme with holographic shimmer.  Definitely in the running for favorite.  Two coats.

Mittens
I go weak at the knees at a good grey and Mittens hit the spot!  A soft, cool toned grey crelly, the dusting of silver shimmer just makes this a delightful winter neutral.  Three coats for full opacity and a chic manicure!

Caramel Swirl
Another favorite!  Caramel Swirl walks the fine line between linear and scattered holographic shimmer, enriching an already delectable chocolate brown color.  In some lights, Caramel Swirl flashes gold and rounds out an already perfectly festive collection.  Two coats.
